Star Trek got many things right when it comes to “future” technology.  The communicator influenced the mobile phone, the Padd from Stng looks very similar to a tablet computer and The X Prize Foundation is offering a $10 Million prize to any company that can develop a working tricorder.  Even The Us Navy got in on the game by using the Original Series bridge design as an influence for their Master Communications Centre in San Diego

But one area Star Trek has struggled in is fashion.  Agreed, the original Series uniforms are now considered a design classic and Shinzon’s outfit in Star Trek Nemesis was quite cool, but Star Trek on the whole has had more that its fair share of clothing disasters.

Science fiction on TV & film has to create a setting that is believable to the people who watch it at the time its shot, and that includes clothing. »
